Dr Sarah Lloyd-Jones: What does poverty really mean?

A lack of progress in tackling poverty in Wales is of "deep concern", assembly members have warned.

Figures are static despite numerous initiatives since 1999 while half of those in poverty are working.

Ministers have treated the symptoms, not the causes, and not been innovative enough, the cross-party communities and equality committee said.

Dr Sarah Lloyd-Jones, director of the People and Work Unit, has been working with regeneration projects in Glyncoch near Pontypridd in Rhondda Cynon Taff for six years to combat poverty.

She told BBC Wales economics correspondent Sarah Dickins what poverty really means in 2015.
